What does “Veriti” mean?
Veriti (veri-te: rhymes with clarity) originates from the Latin word veritas, meaning truth. The English word verity means, “the quality or condition of being true, factual or real.” We added a contemporary element by changing the last letter, resulting in Veriti, a professional services firm dealing in the truth and presenting information that is both factually accurate and theoretically sound – aspects you should expect from a financial expert.
